Saints' C.J. Spiller: Limited to start camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spiller (leg) has been limited to start the Saints' training camp, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Spiller said he and the Saints' staff determined that limiting him to start camp would be the best course of action in preparation for this season. The veteran had arthroscopic knee surgery last August, and although he returned by Week 2 following that procedure, Spiller's ability to cut was clearly limited throughout the campaign. To ward off further lingering effects going into this season, Spiller will be eased into the action, as his early camp participation level reflects.

Saints' C.J. Spiller: Looking much improved in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spiller (leg) has looked much improved during OTAs, the Saints' official site reports. "I'd say C.J.'s health and his movement skills look noticeably different," head coach Sean Payton said. "He worked his butt off in the offseason to get the strength back in that knee where he had his injury. That has been really encouraging."

Spiller was a disappointment, to say the least, after joining the Saints as a free agent, but arthroscopic knee surgery performed during the preseason served to put him behind the eight ball. He still managed to make his season debut in Week 2 and played in 13 straight games until he was shut down for good in the penultimate week of the regular season. However, he received no more than 26 snaps in any contest, while reaching a season-high 10 touches on two occasions, en route 36 carries for 112 yards (3.1 YPC), 34 receptions (on 44 targets) for 239 yards, and two receiving touchdowns. If his conditioning is indeed reminiscent of his tenure with the Bills, he could serve as a nice pass-catching complement to Mark Ingram in the upcoming campaign.

Saints' C.J. Spiller: Disappointing 2015 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

C.J. Spiller (leg) gained 112 yards on 36 carries and 239 yards on 34 receptions in 13 games in his first season with the New Orleans Saints .

2015 was an unmitigated disaster for Spiller, as he failed to meet fantasy owners' high expectations after signing with the Saints this offseason. Rather than serving as the Saints' backfield pass-catching option, a la Reggie Bush or Darren Sproles, Spiller missed nearly all of training camp following arthroscopic knee surgery and struggled to earn playing time after he returned to health. Spiller is still under contract for another three years, but with Mark Ingram emerging as a receiver and Tim Hightower exploding back onto the NFL scene, not to mention the possible return of Khiry Robinson, Spiller will likely enter a crowded Saints' backfield in 2016.

Saints' C.J. Spiller: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

C.J. Spiller (leg) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Spiller's tenure with the New Orleans Saints got off to a rocky start, as arthroscopic knee surgery was ordered up in the midst of the preseason slate. After missing the season opener, Spiller played in the Saints' next 13 games and even avoided the injury report after Week 2. However, he was suddenly inactive this past Sunday, and after he was placed on IR, Woodbery relayed that Spiller had difficulty regaining strength in his leg following the procedure. In the end, Spiller mustered only 36 rushes for 112 yards, 34 catches (on 44 targets) for 239 yards, and two receiving touchdowns in what could be his only campaign in New Orleans.

Saints' C.J. Spiller: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Spiller is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

In two games since Ingram sustained a season-ending torn rotator cuff, Spiller hasn't seen an appreciable uptick in usage, while tallying five carries for four yards and five receptions on eight targets for 23 yards. The Saints will likely turn to Travaris Cadet to fill Spiller's change-of-pace role behind Tim Hightower.
